Geographic information supply

Depending on the application areas you are dealing with, different types of geographic information or GIS-data are needed in order to support local decision making, planning or process monitoring.

The data may range from simple infrequent large scale low-resolution (satellite) remote sensing imagery to very frequent small scale thematic maps, derived from complex application models.

We assist you in finding unique high-quality geographic information products or services supplied by our Netherlands UNSDI partners.

Application areas we cover are Food Security, Agricultural Development, Water Management, Economic Development, Peace and Safety, Tropical Forest Monitoring, Humanitarian Response, Environmental Protection, the realization of the Sustainable Development Goals, and to combat the impact of climate change.

We manage the Netherlands UNSDI-GeoNetwork portal, making geographic metadata (the "yellow pages") on GIS data available from all linked UN organizations and national UNSDI geographic information suppliers.
